06. Stormsterk 

Tracl<: "Shemering" 

Country: Netherlands 




The two-man formation Stormsterk brings energetic Folk Rock, inspired by Northern 
European Folk music and 70s Prog Rock. 

Stormsterk was founded by Mark Kwint some years ago. Inspired by traditional Folk music 
like 'Folkcorn' and heavier bands like 'Otyg' and also influenced by the nature and tales of 
the Veluwe area, he began to write music and lyrics. The ideas piled up but weren't 

Then, after the musical cooperation in the Dark Folk Rock band 'Faelwa ' and the 
completion of the MCD 'Farewell Sun' in 2009, Mark en Jasper began to play more Folk 
music. In a spontaneous way, they began to make songs based on Mark's narrative lyrics. 
With musical input from both members and Jasper's music production skills, one song 
after another was created. 

The music is mostly played on acoustic instruments and supported by drums, bass, 
hammond organ and various non-conventional instruments. Everything is done by Mark 
and Jasper except some guest performances like female vocals and hurdy gurdy. 

In August 2010 they completed their debut album 'Wild en Bijster Land', which contains 11 
songs with various influences. The whole album, including the artwork and production 
was done by the two members. Only some parts were played by guest performers. 
The cd, including a sixteen-page booklet with all the lyrics can be ordered here . The album 
is also available as free download

07. Faelwa 

Track: 'The Heron'' 

Country: Netherlands 

Myspace: www. nn y space. con)/ faelwa 



Jasper Strik and Mark Kwint wrote nnusic together since Mark joined the band Jasper 
played in. After a while, they realized they were thinking in a different direction fronn the 
other members, so they decided to go their own way. 

When parting with this band they also put aside the electric guitars and keyboards 
because they felt more comfortable with a more organic sound. As they share much love 
for nature, they choose for a nature-romantic approach when writing new music. 

Their goal is to write music where melancholic feelings ore intensified. It's about 
approaching grief in a positive way without turning it to the opposite. How they archieved 
this can be heard on their EP 'Farewell Sun'. This piece of dark music was released in 2009.
